The Los Angeles Rams quietly had a fantastic offseason.

After a Super Bowl victory, general manager Les Snead focused on retaining as much in-house talent as possible, and his plan worked to perfection. All the key elements of Los Angeles' ring-winning team will return for the 2022 season, but there are still a couple of moves the Rams could make to improve their offseason.
Here are two moves Los Angeles should make to put the finishing touches on their roster before the 2022 season kicks off.
Rams Moves After 2022 NFL Draft
2. Pursue Jason Pierre-Paul
One of the only holes on the Rams roster is at edge rusher.
Von Miller signed with the Buffalo Bills, leaving Los Angeles fairly thin at the position. Right now, they're set to start Leonard Floyd and Justin Hollins on the edges. Floyd has proven himself to be a solid player, but Hollins is a total question mark. There isn't much depth at the position either, as the only legitimately solid backup the Rams have is Terrell Lewis.
Entering the season with a huge potential liability at one of the most important positions on the field isn't a great idea, even for an elite Rams defense.
That's where Pierre-Paul comes in. He's coming off of an admittedly poor season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Los Angeles could certainly find a role for him. Pierre-Paul was asked to play a ton of snaps with the Bucs, something that likely took a toll on the 33-year-old. The Rams would be able to use him as a situational pass-rusher, taking a ton of pressure off him to produce on a down-to-down basis.
Los Angeles would likely be able to land Pierre-Paul on a team-friendly deal. He's coming off a rough year, and it's clear that he's nearing the end of his career. The Rams would give him a legitimate shot at another title, so it's really a win for both sides.
Overall, there's no reason for Los Angeles to not give Pierre-Paul a phone call at the very least.

1. Sign Cole Beasley
The Rams already signed wide receiver Allen Robinson this offseason, but that addition isn't enough. The lack of depth at wide receiver nearly doomed Los Angeles in the Super Bowl, at least until Cooper Kupp took over the game.
The Rams are currently set to enter the 2022 season with a similar lack of depth. Behind Kupp, Robinson and Van Jefferson, there isn't much of anything. Ben Skowronek played a decent amount in his rookie year, but none of his snaps were particularly good. Tutu Atwell, last year's second-rounder, didn't catch a single pass as a rookie. It's clear that Los Angeles needs some help at the position.
Beasley would be able to step in and immediately provide that help. He plays a somewhat similar game to former Ram Robert Woods, so he would fit right into the offense. Beasley should be willing to sign a fairly cheap contract after a tough year with the Bills in 2021, and the appeal of chasing a championship should also entice him.
Beasley is the best free-agent wide receiver available, so adding him would be huge for the Rams.
